Oh wow. 3 months have passed – how time flys by!
So, what have I been up to in the past quarter year (doesn’t it sound like a lot more like this?!) ?
First of all, I did some stuff for university, as the summer semerster came to an end. I will upload a homework I wrote in computer science shortly. The topic is “software architectures” – it’s in german of course, but I suppose that some day some one speaking german might find this interesting – isn’t this what the internet is for?
Also, I’ve had a visit from my grand parents from California over in July. And then, I’ve been working at Intevation GmbH as an intern for the last month. Intevation is a very nice company to work at. All employees are very friendly and what I think is great as well, is that they only do free software (as in free speach).
Since I’m a big fan of free software and its movement, I applied for an internship earlier this year and, well, they’ve accepted my application
So currently, I’ve been working on some packaging related stuff for Ubuntu and Debian. I’ll probably talk more about that in another upcoming post soon.
Alright, let’s get to the next topic I wanted to adress here:
I’ve started to work on a(nother) interpreter for a stack-based programming language I’ve called “Stackd”. It’s basically a poor & small reimplementation of the Factor programming language, but still missing many features of course.
If you’re interested in how it works and what it’s all about to programm in a concatinative programming language, as stack-based languages are often called, take a look here: http://concatenative.org. There you’ll find plenty of information, most of which will also apply for Stackd.
You can follow the current development progress at my git repositories here:
I’ve started to use Gitorious next to GitHub because I like the fact that it’s free software and I want to support it in a way. Besides, it’s well thought out and I guess more people should take a look at it instead of just choosing GitHub without checking out what else is left. Of course, GitHub does have some nice features, which Gitorious is still missing – but that might change in the future.
I’ll probably make another post soon explaining a little more my new language. If there are any questions, feel free to contact me either on GitHub, Gitorious or via email (see ‘About me’ page).
